Make the vertical scroll bar bigger and more visible
The vertical scroll bar is very thin and not easy to see or click on. Make it more like a regular Windows slider that is permanently visible.
My thoughts exactly. Who thought it was a great idea to practically hide such a mission-critical feature. Why not retain a consistent look and feel across all Office products.
100% agree. I have just tried 3 times to scroll up one row at a time in a document and my cursor keeps slipping off the arrow and going up a page.
It is the most annoying part of Teams. I'd like to see an arrow at the end of the scroll-bar too for fine movement. If I am in a situation without a mouse and try to control it on the finger pad, it goes all over and I lose which chat thread I am on.
Agree with comment above (re: vertical scroll bar), and would also ask that the horizontal scroll bar be thicker or easier to see / use - it's currently very thin and so close to the edge of the window that the mouse often gets confused as to whether user is trying to grab the window frame or the scroll bar.

"Using standard controls" has been consistent UI advice from Microsoft since Windows 3.1, and for good reason.
Standard controls provide clear signals to the user as to what will happen when used, and they come with a set of default behavior which is difficult to precisely replicate.
